Welcome – R-Forge

What are R and R-Forge?

R is `GNU S', a freely available language and environment for statistical computing and graphics which provides a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques: linear and nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis, classification, clustering, etc. Please consult the R-project homepage for further information.
R-Forge offers a central platform for the development of R packages, R-related software and further projects. It is based on FusionForge offering easy access to the best in SVN, daily built and checked packages, mailing lists, bug tracking, message boards/forums, site hosting, permanent file archival, full backups, and total web-based administration.

Help with maintaining and developing the "linprog" package

Arne Henningsen - 2013-12-30 17:01 - linprog: Linear Programming/Optimization

As I am no longer applying linear programming in my research and teaching, the "linprog" package no longer has a high priority on my todo list. Therefore, I would be happy, if someone could help me with maintaining and developing the "linprog" package. I thought about removing the "linprog" package from CRAN and R-Forge, because the "lpSolve" package is much more powerful than the "linprog" package but several people wrote me that they prefer to use "linprog," because they find it easier to use compared to "lpSolve". Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you think you could somehow contribute to the maintenance or development of "linprog."
